A total number of 32,000 candidates will participate in the University of Lagos (UNILAG) post-Unified Tertiary Matriculation Examination (UTME) scheduled to hold from Wednesday, 12th August to Friday, 14th August, 2015.
According to the institution’s Deputy Registrar (Information), Mr Olagoke Oke, the figure was close to four times the 9,000 that was initially posted to the institution by the Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board (JAMB).
Oke said: “I want to say that all logistics toward a smooth conduct of this examination are fully in place. We have always been ready for situations like this and have always got it right.
“Before now, we were hoping to put logistics in place for the initial 9,000 candidates, but with the reversal of the decision, we now have to re-adjust and I want to say that we are fully prepared.
“All our computers and its accessories, the backups, alternative power supply as well as adequate personnel that will conduct the examination are all ready.”
The deputy registrar added that the university was compelled to extend the exercise to three days because of the large number of candidates seeking admission into the institution.
He, however, advised candidates to arrive early at the examination centres for a hitch-free exercise. (NAN)
